Anti-Catholicism in Britain and Ireland, 1600-2000. Practices, Representations and Ideas

Auteur : Claire Gheeraert-Graffeuille & Geraldine Vaughan (dir.)
N° ISBN : 978-3-030-42882-2
Editeur : Palgrave Macmillan

This edited collection brings together varying angles and approaches to tackle the multi-dimensional issue of anti-Catholicism since the Protestant Reformation in Britain and Ireland. It is of course difficult to infer from such geographically and historically diverse studies one single contention, but what the book as a whole suggests is that there can be no teleological narration of anti-Catholicism — its manifestations were episodic, more or less rooted in common worldviews, and its history does not end today.

Editors : Claire Gheeraert-Graffeuille (Université de Rouen Normandie) & Geraldine Vaughan (Université de Rouen Normandie).
